1 | ACCURACY 1st

$350 per person per day

Accuracy 1st has worked with Marine Corps and SOF snipers. Training is structured to fit the needs of the client. There are two facilities—one in the panhandle of Texas and the other in the SE corner of Utah. Owner Todd Hodnett chose these two facilities for specific reasons. The Utah facility offers one of the few true high-angle shooting ranges in the nation. The Texas facility (300,000 acres) offers excellent training in a high wind environment with terrain features; wind is the primary reason we miss at long range. It also features a 1000-meter, 360-degree range on one of its six ranges. Instructors are a SME for the Horus reticle. Military courses offered include: Basic Sniper; Advanced Sniper; High Angle; Instructor Classes; Designated Marksmen; and Ballistic software training. Civilian classes are also offered.

The Introductory Long-Range 1 is a 2-day class designed for the true beginner who needs to get up to speed with all the long-range lingo and methods. Students will spend 8 hours in the classroom and 10 hours on the range learning proper fundamentals and techniques that allow the shooter more success on the range. Learn how easy it can be and not in an intimidating environment. This course is fun for everyone and very educational.
